Snow Patrol/Hot Hot Heat July 30 , 2007 Red Rocks Morrison Colorado

This is the second time this season that Hot Hot Heat got to play Red Rocks, they opened for the Killers on May 17., the show that Brandon Flowers had to cancel after the second song due to issues with his voice. Hot Hot Heat stole the show that night and did a great job this night as well. Singer Steve Bays is energetic and likes to play to the crowd. Their catchy pop sing alongs were a hit with the young crowd , and so was their energy.
I was looking forward to seeing Snow Patrol, I saw them in March at a sold out show at the Fillmore and they sounded great. I was wondering how they would handle the leap from a 4000 seat venue to a 10,000 seat venue. It was great to see the amazement on their faces as they walked on stage.They opened with "Hands Open." Singer Gary Lightbody spoke to the crowd about how the band growing up in Ireland and Scotland saw the U2 Video "Under a Blood Red Sky"which was filmed in 1983 had inspired him and that it was a dream come true to play Red Rocks. You could see that he was truley inspired by the beauty of this magical place. The Highpoint of the show was when they payed " Chasing Cars" and "Shut Your Eyes". The fans sang along to every word . It was a great show and it was good to see the way this place energized the band.0730071934
